Do women spend more hours working than men?
Family life has changed do you think man and woman need to spend an equal amount of time working around the house and in taking care of the kids?
I think both parents should have an equal responsibility in child-rearing and household management. Especially since both genders typically now work - why should the woman be expected to work hard at her paid job all day only to come home and work hard at her unpaid (and typically under-appreciated) job all by herself?
Women do more unpaid labor like childcare and eldercare and housework, men do more, on average, paid labor in the workforce.
I believe that both men and women are sharing the at home responsibilities more. I know in my own home my husband is working around the house as I work out of the house. We both seem to sort of share the load. Of course, our children are out of the house. If we still had young ones around I believe we would still share the work load. I have seen a change in the way families relate now. My daughters and their husbands are equal partners when taking care of their children.
Depends. It's a cultural phenomena: My mom never stopped working and my dad was 24/7 tending farms animals and cultivating farm land a year-round . Both were working long hours , and both were active to the " last hour". After working day, went to sleep, and didn't get up. Mom mid seventy and a Dad at eighty seven. In our culture we have learned from our parents to "love" each other by " giving" and " sharing." To answer directly, women spend much more hours working on average. Have you considered " hard work" being pregnant for full nine months !? with the other 'normal' everyday responsibilities around the house and outside the house. I wish to know that first time. Men are just not ' gifted' in taking care of the kids as women do. Mom's have the heart of God, they feel and love more closely and do react more tenderly. While ' we" take care for all the rest around house, in the house, and always plan family fun / trips and vacations ALL family together. We were bringing our children to the banquets, if the children were not allowed, we all stayed home.
Well, we do not believe in 'retirement ' - which means , your question won't be easily answered, because as long as we are active, we live - long hours.
In general, yes, but now everything has changed. Sometimes a man spends an hour working around the house more than woman.
